The current version of Fvwm in CVS is 2.66.

I don't remember the Pager issue, but I guess it could be fixed.
Did you submit a stack dump?

I can set up a Schedule test, but it sounds like it's going to take
a couple of weeks to recreate the problem.
I don't see anything in the current code that would cause
a problem.

I suggest you start with running something current.
